Your favorite Christmas song actually says a lot more about you than you’d think… This doesn’t cover every Holiday song in 101.9’s repertoire, but I tried to cover a good range. Everyone has at least a top three, and I guarantee you that one of your favorite yuletide jams is on this list.

The Classic Christmas:

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Frosty the Snowman

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Holly Jolly Christmas

You cherish the classic Christmas. It’s the Christmas that makes you think of your childhood. You have tons of Christmas traditions, and you would never miss any of them. Your favorite Holiday films are the original Rudolph, Frosty, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. You’re also one to start blasting holiday jingles in early November. Everyone else groans, but you can’t hear them over Rudolph and Frosty.

The Humorous Christmas:

The Chipmunk Song

Dominic the Donkey

I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas

You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch

The Marvelous Toy

The funny, slightly annoying songs are your all time faves. They’re all cute and fun enough to get away with it, especially during Christmastime. You’ve probably had heated debates as to whether the singer of I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas is a boy of girl. Only to finally Google it and discover that Gayla Peevey is in fact a girl from Oklahoma City. There’s no question about it, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is your favorite holiday film. And no, not the Jim Carrey one. That one’s good, but nothing beats the original animated one.

The Dance Party Christmas:

Jingle Bell Rock

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

Blue Christmas

Feliz Navidad

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

You’re dancing for the entire month of December. You know the all the choreography to the Mean Girls talent show dance. You’re ready to jump into Christmas at least midway through November. People are telling you no, but your body is telling YEAH. Christmas is the most joyous time of the year for you, and you’re ready to mask in its glory for as long as possible.

The Annoying Christmas:

Santa Baby

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Last Christmas

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Klaus

No offense, and I mean this with the kindest sentiment, but you love the most obnoxious and cheesiest Christmas songs in existence. But the thing is, you embrace it. You know that the woman singing Santa Baby is annoying, as is the kid trying to tell the whole world that he saw his mom kissing Santa Claus. You know that Baby, It’s Cold Outside has weirdly rapey undertones. But they’re still “classics”, and you’ve grown fondly accustomed to them.

The Classy Christmas:

Silent Night

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

White Christmas

O Holy Night

Do You Hear What I Hear?

These are the “classy”, dare I say, “mature” Christmas songs. They’re slower and some of them are more about the religious aspects of the holiday. They’re more thoughtful and emotional. You’re strictly a “December is the only time for Christmas music kind of person”. Christmas is a peaceful, calm time for you to spend with family and enjoy the warmth of holiday cheer.

The Modern Christmas:

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – by Mariah Carey

Santa Claus is Coming To Town – by Bruce Springsteen

Little Saint Nick – by Beach Boys

Jingle Bells – by Michael Buble

All I Want For Christmas Is You – by Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is your Queen of Christmas. You love all the modern artists’ covers of the old classics. You’re definitely going Black Friday shopping. And you’ve got all your favorite websites bookmarked for Cyber Monday. You’re going to at least three Christmas parties this year, and have multiple Secret Santas. Christmastime is a sparkling blast for you.

The Instrumental Mood Christmas:

Christmas Time Is Here – Charlie Brown Christmas

Any Trans Siberian Orchestra Christmas song. You know... the one they play in all the retail holiday commercials.

Any Manheim Steamroller Christmas song. Lesser known, but still a top notch holiday album.

Christmas is a nostalgic time for you. You’re already a fan of classical music, so naturally one of these hits is your favorite. They really set the mood and get you into the spirit. Decorating the Christmas tree is probably your favorite thing to do in preparation for the big holiday, and you’re definitely giving fresh baked cookies as this year’s Official Present to close friends and family. Overall, Christmas is a peaceful, low-key time of the year for you. You keep it as stress-free as possible and enjoy a cozy drink by the fire.

And finally, if your favorite Christmas song is The Christmas Shoes, I think you need a good hug and some cookies because that song makes me want to cry in a corner for hours.

19 Things To Do On Your 19th Birthday

You only turn 19 years old once, so spend the day doing these awesome things!

Nineteen isn't a fantastic birthday. It is not your 18th birthday where you can start saying, "I'm legal," it's not your 16th birthday when you can have a Sweet 16 birthday party and it is not your 21st birthday where you can finally drink legally.

So here are 19 things that you can do to celebrate your 19th birthday and make the most of it.

1. Sleep in.

Unless you need to wake up early for something, don't set your alarm. Catch up on your sleep and relax for the morning. Enjoy waking up and not having a place to be.

2. Make yourself a nice breakfast.

You only turn 19 once, so make sure it is a good breakfast to start your day off right. Make yourself some eggs, toast, bacon and a nice cup of coffee.

3. Go get a manicure.

It is your birthday; make sure you treat yourself right! You deserve to be pampered on your birthday!

4. Go to the beach.

There is nothing better than getting some sun on your birthday! Enjoy the warm weather and the heat. Swim in the water and soak up some sun.

5. Go to an amusement park.

For those of you who like the thrill of roller coasters, an amusement park is the way to go. Ride roller coasters and eat some fried dough with your friends.

6. Have a party.

This is the most common way to celebrate your birthday. Invite friends to come over and make food. Spend your birthday surrounded by friends and family.

7. Have a bonfire.

This is what I love to do on my birthday. Surround yourself with your best friends, enjoy some s'mores and sit around the fire.

8. Go on a hike.

For the nature lovers, this is the ideal way to spend your birthday. Grab a friend and go to the Adirondack mountains and spend the day hiking.

9. Buy yourself something nice.

That pair of boots you've been staring at for the last two months or that Michael Kors wallet you've been dreaming of? It's your birthday! Go buy it. You deserve it.

10. Have a movie night.

Invite a couple friends over, make some popcorn and have movie theater candy on hand. Watch a couple movies and eat some snacks with your best friends.

11. Call up an old friend.

I'm sure that old friend has been thinking of you too, so why not give them a call? See if they want to go out and get lunch with you.

12. Buy some lottery tickets.

Who knows? Your birthday could end up being your lucky day. Maybe you'll lose all of your money, but maybe you could win some back too.

13. Go to a concert.

What is better than music on your birthday? Hopefully there will be some good music groups in town during your birthday.

14. Bake a cake.

If you love to bake, then make a birthday cake! Decorate it all specially and put your favorite colors and flavors of frosting on it.

15. Do something on your bucket list.

At one point or another, all of us have made a bucket list. Take it out and find something on your bucket list that you can cross off and complete!

16. Spend your day with family.

Enjoy your day surrounded by your family. They will know exactly what to do for the day and how to make sure your birthday is a good one.

17. Visit your favorite place.

Whether you love going to the zoo and seeing the animals, or there is a nearby city that you love going to, spend the day there.

18. Get a haircut.

It is a new year and a new you! Get a haircut!

19. Do something you love doing.

Whether you love reading or love to run, spend the day doing whatever it is you love. It is your birthday and you should spend the day doing what you love.

Why I've Never Not Had A Valentine

It's the day of love. It does not mean it has to be romantic.

732

If my memory serves me correctly, I have always had a valentine. By that, I don't mean that I have had a boyfriend every single year since I was five.

In Spanish, Valentine's Day is also referred to as "Dia del Amor y la Amistad", which translates to the day of love and friendship. I'm not a big fan of the holiday, because to me someone should show me love every single day, not only one specific day because "everybody else is doing it".

On that note, however, I have always had a valentine. In elementary school, we celebrated the holiday and everyone was each other's valentines. Even that girl (the one who stole your game that you won on Friday because you accumulated enough points to pick it from the prize box) would be your valentine.

In middle school, my grandpa or dad would get me those little chocolate hearts, which are about a dollar at Walmart. I don't recall ever going without one. Then, the next day they'd take me to stock up on candy because of price drops!

In high school, once my friends got their driver's licenses and part-time jobs, we'd finish classes and go to Highway 55 and celebrate Galentine's Day or stock up on cheat day food and go to the park. This year we've all gone our separate ways. We've gone to different schools and maybe communication was just lost, but I'm so thankful for the memories I have with everyone.

This year I'm my own valentine, (which no, it is not shameful) because I learned to love myself enough to celebrate it with myself. Love doesn't always have to be romantic, it does not always mean dinner dates and engagement proposals. Love means calling your mom, your dad, or grandma and wishing them a happy Valentine's Day. It means telling your friends that you're proud of them.

Love means recognizing yeah, it's been a hell of a week, but you got through it. Valentine's Day sometimes means going to your nearest Target, grabbing a bottle of cocktail juice, and putting on a face-mask while catching up on your favorite TV show. Valentine's Day is so generalized to be about romantic love that some people feel alone. You really shouldn't.

If you feel alone, just remember someone loves you for you and maybe it's not your time for romance. If that doesn't help, then I count as your valentine.
